Bills Had No Interest When Giants Called About Odell Beckham Trade

Bills Had No Interest When Giants Called About Odell Beckham Trade Giants GM defends Beckham Jr trade and says Browns 'knocked it out the park'

Gettleman said he only made one trade call shopping Beckham; he reached out to the Buffalo Bills after learning of their failed pursuit of Antonio Brown.

NFL insider Peter King devoted an ample portion of his weekly Football Morning in America column on NBC Sports to the Cleveland Browns and the blockbuster Odell Beckham Jr. trade.

"You gotta trust me".

Before making the shocking trade with the Browns last week, it turns out that Gettleman talked to at least two other teams about his star receiver, which means that the Giants general manager talked to almost 10 percent of the league (3 out of 31 teams).

"And I'm OK if you disagree with me, that's fine".

In total, the Giants moved Beckham and defensive end Olivier Vernon to the Browns in exchange for a first-round pick, third-round pick, safety Jabrill Peppers and guard Kevin Zeitler.

The Giants have finished bottom of the NFC East for the last two seasons, and their starting quarterback, Eli Manning, is 38 and in decline. Because if Beane and the Bills were interested in Brown from a football standpoint despite the things that made him no longer welcome in Pittsburgh, Beane should have been more than interested in Beckham from a football standpoint despite the things that made him no longer welcome in NY. I want everyone to know this was purely a football business decision. "Trust me, we've got a plan". "Over time, you have to be patient". Over time, you will see it.

"Because of Odell's talent and personality, this was a decision we did not enter into lightly", said Gettleman, who has run the Giants since Jerry Reese was sacked in December 2017. Odell is a tremendous talent, which made him a valuable asset.

Entering his second season overseeing the Giants, Gettleman admitted the team is undergoing a rebuild and has multiple holes on the roster to plug. Some have questioned why we signed Odell and then traded him. "And as it turned out the fact that he was signed for five more years made him very attractive and enabled us to get legitimate value".

"What changed it is another team made us an offer we couldn't refuse".
